Mama June said:
"I just like threw some clothes on and walked out the door…"
In her confessional, Pumpkin admitted that her mom looked different and unlike her glamorous self. The young adult said: "It's really strange to see my mother like this. We're talking about the lady who got her hair done every two weeks…" Lauryn added that she felt she made the "right" decision by not taking Alana with her.
